    I like Ping Tracert and nslookup, however the util of all utils has got to be ipconfig

    Thanks guys, they're all invaluable utils, however I'm a util freak and love finding free little tools which give more flexibility and options than the standard tools provided by microsoft. I was wondering if you'd discovered any little gems. A great site which has loads of these is www.joeware.net , the most useful util i got from there is a command line utility which allows you to view/unlock all locked user accounts in a domain or you can specify switches to narrow the list down to a specific ou.

    I found a similar util recently, i was given an old Dual processor server, nothing flash only a PII 300Mhz machine, however it had sat in the corner of the comms room for so long that noone could remember the password, the utils i used to crack the password were a prog called NTFS Reader

    http://www.ntfs.com/products.htm

    I used this to take a copy of the SAM file of of the machine onto floppy then took the file to another PC and ran a prog called l0phtcrack (thats a zero) the latest is called LC4

    http://www.atstake.com/research/lc/download.html

    this found the passwords for all accounts/users in 7 secs, not very secure, the company are now using the same util to check how secure/strong everyones password in the whole of the company is

    Take a look, it came even pick up the password hashes from sniffing a network, it's a good util to check your password security

    All those fancy utils!

    I prefer to work with what comes out of the box for I simple reason I need to work accross a hugh network on a mixture of platforms UNIX, Liniux, Windows & Novell so I have to use all the basic stuff. If you really understand what they are telling you that all you need.

    Angryip scanner is an oft used favourite of mine, bloody useful when dealing with new clients who have no idea what's plugged in to their network!
